Remote access to e-resources

© MPIB | Bibliothek

Click here to use the EZproxy:

EZproxy provides access to licensed electronic resources from outside the Institute's IP range. This service works without installing any additional software and it is independent of the operating system. All you need is a web browser. Sign in with the same name and password you use to login on your computer at the institute*.





* In case you do not have access to EZproxy, please apply for an EZproxy account at the secretariat of your respective research center.

How can I find resources

© MPIB | Bibliothek

After your login, you can use the search box to find journals or databases. Enter words from a journal title or database name, select the displayed title (1) and click on the start button (2). You will then be forwarded to the journal / database site. You can also use the alphabetical list below the search box and click on the resource.

Are all available journals listed here?

The list is just a selection. Use the Electronic Journals Library - MPIB to find all journals available.

How do I find a database?

Use the MPG Resource Navigator (Rena) to get an overview of all available databases or to search for a specific one.

Frequently asked questions

The journal I Am looking for is on the list, but I don’t have access. What can I do?

This problem occurs when you go to another page after your login (by opening a bookmark, clicking on the menu or manually entering something in the address bar), thus leaving the EZproxy context.

Go back to the EZproxy site and access the resource again. Make sure that "ezproxy.mpib-berlin.mpg.de" is part of your URL.    

How do I know that the current page is accessed via EZProxy?

You will know you are connected to EZproxy when "ezproxy.mpib-berlin.mpg.de" is part of the URL.

Useful tip

Bookmark your favorite resources (with ezproxy.mpib-berlin.mpg.de being part of the URL).
